The Great Courtyard of the British Museum. The glass roof is fantastic.

for 2 views on english domestic architecture there's a 1:1 semi-d (artist Michael Landy's) rebuilt inside tate britain

and while you're in that area there's tony fretton's new red house on tite street.

Take the Docklands Light Railway and Jubilee lines to see, Docklands, Canary Wharf and the new Tube stations.

Instead of the usual suspects check out the world's best small museum, the Sir John Soane Museum. It's a wee gem and a mine of architectural ideas. Check out this link:

Well worth a visit

Cheers
